Abstract (en)

A gesture-controlled computer system includes a mobile computing device, a range camera, and a gesture-control subsystem. The gesture-control subsystem is in communication with the mobile computing device and the range camera. The gesture-control subsystem includes a gesture-capturing module that is configured for acquiring a first-taken range image of an articulating-gesture-controller. The gesture-control subsystem also includes a range-image-analysis module configured for generating a gesture-data-point profile derived at least in part from the first-taken range image. The gesture-data-point profile includes information regarding a plurality of gesture data points, including information about the relative position of the gesture data points. The gesture-control subsystem also includes a gesture-recognition module configured for (i) receiving the gesture-data-point profile from the range-image-analysis module, (ii) mapping the gesture-data-point profile to a corresponding device command, and (iii) transmitting the corresponding device command to the mobile device for execution of the device command by the mobile device.
